Residence on the Hudson River

GARRISON, NY

 

 

 

 

 

This primary residence located across from West Point sits on the banks of the Hudson River. Abraham Lincoln once visited the original building built in the 1800’s during his excursion to view the troops at the United States Military Academy. Located on a parcel of land that extends into the river, the edifice had very limited views up and down the river. At the turn of the century the building and land had been used as an oil and coal depot.

The project included a new entry pavilion, renovation of the living room and upstairs library, a second story deck off the library, numerous terraces, a lap pool with adjacent pergola, and a separate out building with kitchen facilities for outdoor entertaining. The new architecture reinforces the historic structures and provides the client with sweeping as well as focused views of their dramatic surroundings and vistas.
